Nestled at the cusp of ancient and contemporary history is a sanctuary of the senses that is Dar Al-Anda. The name is an authentically Arabic one. It best translates into “home of the giving“ and therefore exemplifies what we stand for. We aim to enrich the lives of our patrons, employees and community by giving them the opportunity to experience art in all of its forms, thereby provoking thought and discourse.
Founded in 1998, Dar Al-Anda rapidly made a name for itself as a haven of fine arts emanating from the region. It has since then continued to build upon that legacy while staying true to its raison d’être. While still a gallery at heart, Dar Al-Anda also promotes and exhibits art in the auditory, visual and sensory forms. A series of musical concerts, literary events and cultural activities has fostered a devoted and growing group of advocates for the impact that Dar Al-Anda hopes to achieve within the art community.
